Then you will find the potential everywhere. Assume there is a slab of charged material whose relative dielectric constant e, = 2.8, and whose uniform volume charge density pv = +1 mC M3. The slab extends to infinity in the y- and z—directions, has a thickness T: 1 cm, and is centered on the x = 0 plane: \>\\ i X yl-‘l \\\o :44 1. Using Gauss’s Law and symmetry arguments, find the electric field E - ii x E x (x) everywhere. (Since the slab is uniform and infinite in y and 2, there is no Ey or E, field.) For your volume, imagine a cylindrical “pillbox” with an axis in the x—direction and put its ends at +x and -x. Again by symmetry, the flux coming out each end has to be equal in magnitude but opposite in direction (sign). You will need three expressions for Ex: one for x < -T/2, one for -T/2 < x < +T/2, and one for x > T/2. When you are done, sketch your Ex(x) on the graph provided.

Find Dx and then E, by integrating the divergence equation from x = 0 to +x and -x values. Your result should be thesamethatyougotinPartl. x>°1 6 E 35* _. 54E _\___3_C_5_;3__- .

Take x: O as the reference point for zero potential (ground) so that V(O) = 0. Do this by integrating from 0 toward positive and negative values of x. Again, you will need expressions for three regions (one for x < —T/2, one for -T/2 < x < +T/2, and one for x > T/2).
